Ocean foam at Australia’s beaches This weird phenomenon happened off the coast of Yamba in New South Wales, Australia. Scientists say the foam is caused by all kinds of impurities, such as chemicals, plants, salts etc. Due to its low density and persistence, foam can be blown by strong on-shore winds from the beachface inland onto sidewalks and streets.

Australia boasts a geoglyph that's larger than Peru's "Nazca Lines" and England's "White Horse". Called the "Marree Man", the pictograph measures 4.2 km tall by 2 km wide and is etched into a plateau near Marree. It depicts an Aboriginal warrior throwing a hunting stick and is so large that it can be viewed fully only from the air. "Marree Man" was discovered by a charter pilot in 1998 and, despite being the world's largest geoglyph, its origin remains a mystery. — with Debbie Borgono
